Combustion and fuels

We use variety of Diesel and Gasoline engines to perform research into advanced technologies that enable us to improve fuel efficiency and reduce combustion generated emissions. Our engine test beds are equipped for developing engine control strategies for optimum fuel economy and low emission targets.

Combustion and fuels testing

Experimental and numerical work in this area focuses on:

  • Developing strategies for 'smart' combustion for flexi-fuel engines
  • Combustion and energy release analysis for different fuels
  • Effect of additives on exhaust gas emissions and performance
  • Thermodynamic modelling of engines and Fuel injection using 1-D numerical simulation
